Dr. Seawood: We Need To Tell The Story Of Our New Tech

While the Benton Harbor school board assumes enrollment will be flat next fall, Superintendent Dr. Leonard Seawood says Benton Harbor isn't the only district in the state struggling to boost its student count.



Next year's budget assumes about 2,800 students will be enrolled into the district.



To bring students back to the district Seawood says a message needs to be shared regarding the New Tech program.



State per pupil aid is increasing by $175 next year. The district hopes that figure will offset any possible decline in enrollment. Benton Harbor Area Schools is currently under a state financial microscope, after Governor Snyder this week ordered a team to review its finances.
